The Ancients – new video + show this Friday

Dreamy Melbourne psych-pop band the Ancients have just revealed the new video for 6 minute sweeping epic Molokai, one of the highlights of their 2013 album Night Bus.

Check out the premiere on Noisey.


The video was created by Monica Vecchiotti and the band’s own Jon Michell from royalty-free stock footage. It tells a cryptic tale of lone wolf self-destruction in the American wilderness, interspersed with uplifting yoga and martial arts footage.

To celebrate the video’s release, the Ancients are playing a show this Friday at Boney, supported by Twerps and Krakatau.

Friday May 16
